Hong Kong’s Media Asia has set up a remake of Exiled with Samuel Hadida (Silent Hill, Domino) aboard to produce.
Media Asia is the entity responsible for Infernal Affairs and its The Departed remake as well as recent Leonardo DiCaprio pickup Confession of Pain.
Exiled, which has overtones of Sergio Leone spaghetti Westerns, tracks the desperate last rolls of the dice by five hoodlums in Macau in the late 1990s, shortly before the territory was handed back to China.
The film was directed by cult crime helmer Johnny To. Hadida plans to develop the redo as a big-budget action pic.
Hadida is in post-production on Resident Evil: Extinction, produced with Constantin Film, and is now preparing Solomon Kane to shoot this summer in Europe with Michael Bassett writing and directing.
